"It's A Wonderful Life is a pretty wonderful movie. Director Capra's inventiveness, humor, and affection for human beings keep it glowing with life and excitement." - TIME
This traditional Christmas film is one of the most beloved in American cinema. Directed by Frank Capra and starring James Stewart, Donna Reed, Lionel Barrymore, and Henry Travers, the film follows George Bailey, a man who has given up his dreams to help others, and whose imminent suicide on Christmas Eve brings about the intervention of his guardian angel, Clarence Odbody. Clarence shows George all the lives he has touched, and how different life in his community of Bedford Falls would be if he had never been born. Nominated for five Academy Awards, It's A Wonderful Life is considered one of the greatest films of all time.
